Bath Tours with Great British Trips
Bath owes its importance to its hot springs, which are unique in Britain. The Romans built a great bathing complex here, and the site (now of world heritage status) includes the most impressive Roman remains in Britain and one of the best preserved Roman spas in the world. The Pump Room directly above the Roman Baths offers an opportunity to drink the spa water, or have traditional afternoon tea there. A visit to Bath must include the majestic Royal Crescent as well as the city's other famous landmark, the Pulteney Bridge, which is lined with tiny shops in an Italianate style. Bath Abbey is beautiful both inside and out, and you can also take a tour including 220 steps to the bell tower. But, Bath is not all about the history. The city also hosts a great choice of Theatre entertainment, and has a great array of fine dining options.
